About United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

Tanzania has defined a range of development goals in the Tanzania Development Vision 2025 which include the creation of high-quality livelihoods; peace, stability, and unity; good governance; a well-educated and learning society; and a competitive economy capable of sustainable growth and shared benefits but all of these development objectives may be undermined by serious and organized crime (SOC). This role is part of a project financed by the FCDO and the European Union and managed by UNDP that seeks to address aspects of serious and organized crime (SOC). Tanzania faces a number of challenges with regard to child sexual exploitation and abuse (CSEA) and in particular online child abuse.

One strand of the project seeks to strengthen Tanzania’s ability to respond to the international dimensions of human trafficking and child protection as Tanzania currently lacks the capability to collect and analyze the available intelligence to support investigations and prosecutions of physical and online child abuse perpetrated in Tanzania. With regard to trafficking, Tanzania has inadequate means of preventing vulnerable children from being trafficked in and out of Tanzania or of disrupting the networks responsible for doing so. The project will establish an Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Protection Unit and the role will be based in this Unit.
